Al2CoO4–PbCrO4 and Al2CoO4–Pb2CrO5 crystalline powders in different proportions were obtained by the polymeric precursor method. Differential scanning calorimetry
(DSC) and thermogravimetry (TG) techniques were used to accurately characterize the distinct thermal events occurring during
synthesis. The TG and DSC results revealed a series of overlapping decomposition reactions due to different exothermal events,
which were identified as H2O and NOx elimination and polymer pyrolysis. The X-ray diffraction patterns of the xAl2CoO4–(1 − x)PbCrO4 and xAl2CoO4–(1 − x)Pb2CrO5 mixed compounds, with x = 1, 0.75, 0.5, 0.25 and 0, were obtained in the crystalline form with their respective phases, and proved consistent with
the nominal compositions. The synthesis of these two systems yielded nine different colors and shades.
